Blairstown Diner, known for being featured in the films “Friday the 13th” and “Plasterhead ,” is celebrating its 70th anniversary.
Gary D. Wishnia, a Frelinghuysen resident, purchased the diner in January because he had been coming to the diner regularly since the day he moved to the neighborhood. He felt an opportunity and obligation to restore the Blairstown Diner back to its original feel.
“At the Blairstown Diner, we have good old-fashioned food and great people! We are making improvements to both the building and the menu. The roof was leaking for years - we have replaced the roof, installed new air conditioning and heating units, polished all the stainless steel, had the seats reupholstered and much more,” said Wishnia.
The diner, which was founded in 1949, recently extended its hours, so it’s open seven days a week - from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. - serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“All locals and new visitors enjoy the diner because it is one of few original style diners still around. On the menu, you’ll still find your favorites, and we are tweaking the menu to make it even better,” said Wishnia.
The diner also has daily specials, and it is a BYOB establishment.
In addition, Blairstown Diner is now a member of the Greater Blairstown Business Association.
The Greater Blairstown Business Association's mission is to encourage and support existing businesses in the Northern Warren County, New Jersey area, promote the development of new enterprises and foster high business and civic standards in the community.
